lost data on drive?
Posted on 2005-04-15
We recently had a server die (win2k server - for reasons unknown to us). So we connected one of it's (scsi) drives to another computer. Now the new computer, when i see it in disk management, shows the drive as needing to be initialized. There is a lot of information on this drive, has it been lost? is the initialization only to set it up for use on the computer? As far as I know, when you initialize you lose all data, right? Is there another way of getting the data off of that short of taking it to data recovery?
